A glass of Brunello contains all the flavours and colours of Tuscany.
The Quercecchio estate is located in Montalcino in the Province of Siena, one of Tuscany’s most famous areas renowned for the beauty of its art and nature and its extraordinary fine wines: Brunello di Montalcino docg and Rosso di Montalcino doc.
The estate is located in the southern reaches of the town and slopes downwards towards the Maremma area. Its 150 hectares includes woods, open pastures, cultivated fields, olive groves and vineyards.
Some of the old buildings still sport the ideograph of the Order of Olivetan Benedictine monks, who have their mother house at the nearby Monte Oliveto Maggiore monastery.
The ancient Chronicon Cancellariae documented the life and events surrounding the Olivetan order, and Quercecchio is recorded in the old book as a convent with land from the late 14th century to the late 17th century.
The estate has been the property of the Salvioni family for five generations now, and Maria Grazia Salvioni has directed her efforts to the growing and making of fine wines, which she personally oversees.
